SPENCES BRIDGE - An Ottawa man has unveiled two billboards he built in Spences Bridge in an attempt to find his missing brother.

Luke Neville, 48, disappeared on Oct. 9, 2017. His older brother Mark Neville has built two billboards with his brother’s picture and the police tip line phone number. He’s asking anyone with information on Luke’s whereabouts to come forward.

Mark said in an RCMP media release he and Luke are both firefighters. He described his brother as a gentle soul who loved dogs, the outdoors and helping people. He said his main goal is to find his brother and bring him home to give his family a sense of solace.

Luke was last seen in the Spences Bridge area on Oct. 9, 2017 driving a 2003 white Ford E250 van. He was reported missing the next day and Lytton RCMP discovered the burned-out van on the Sackum Forest Service Road. Police consider his disappearance as suspicious.

Luke is described as 6’3” and 200 lbs. with short grey hair and brown hair. He was last seen wearing dark clothes and sunglasses.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call RCMP at 1-877-987-8477, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
